VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

The Valdosta Regional Airport Manager was preparing Wednesday to update the airport authority on a wildlife study conducted at the airport.

As of Wednesday, a biologist had been working for about three weeks to write a formal wildlife plan for the airport based on the data collected during the study.

The study began in the Spring of 2013 and took about a year to complete. Biologists looked at everything from how tall the grass is to how the airport deals with standing water.

"They will take that data and then give us a plan in order to help us mitigate any issues we may have with any of the wildlife here in the airport," said Valdosta Regional Airport Manager Jim Galloway.

The plan was expected to be completed in the next two to three months.
